Sycophants


I don't like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people: Somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you, there is no "I" in team. What you should tell them is, maybe not. But there is an "I" in independence, individuality and integrity. Avoid teams at all costs. Keep your circle small. Never join a group that has a name. If they say, we are the so and so's, take a walk. And if, somehow, you must join, if it's unavoidable, such as a union or a trade association  go ahead and join. But don't participate; it will be your death. And if they tell you you're not a team player, congratulate them on being observant.

George was my hero...still is!!

There's an I in weird too. I've always been told I was weird. That just meant I didn't fit into the tight ass little mold that was assigned to me by the higher ups in both my NFOO and my profession.

These days I'm pretty damn proud of being weird. Weird just means I'm me!
